Was hoping I can get some advice here on changing medication from Rebif to Tecfidera.
I have now been on Rebif for about 10 years. I hate having to inject however I have been free of Relapses for a few years now, so it is working for me.
However lately I have been having a lot of muscle pain particularly when injecting and the bruises seem to take much longer to heal. I saw my neuro about a month ago and spoke to him about this, he suggested I change my medication from Rebif to Tecfidera.
I am in 2 minds on this, as I would love not to have to self-inject anymore, however I am very scared of having a relapse due to the change of medication and very worried that the new medication will not be as good and I might have a relapse.
Has anyone here been in a similar situation? Is there something I should be looking out for prior to changing medication? I am meant to see my MS nurse in a few weeks, I have so many questions I’m not sure where to start.
